This hotel has been built in the old kitchen area of Lisbon's castle, and has been delightfully integrated into its surroundings, with tasteful furnishings inside and peaceful outdoor seating areas - a peace occasionally interrupted by the call of the peacocks that nest nearby!
The breakfast was buffet-style, with hot and cold choices; there was a tea-making table in the dining/sitting room, and a lovely extra welcoming touch in the bedroom was a carafe of vinho do porto! A service we didn't use, but which was available, was a bar with an 'honesty' payment-system!
The receptionists were all-smiles and received us as special guests into the hotel, with charm and obvious concern for our welfare during our stay.
The hotel was a little difficult to find by car, but that was probably me, because we were sent explicit instructions by the hotel. We had 'booked' a space in the car park, which is a little distance from the hotel itself, and were ferried back to it with our bags on leaving.
In all, a lovely experience in a hotel full of character - even with its own little museum of artefacts uncovered during excavations and housed in the old cistern.
